'Hemlock Grove' picked up for second season

Horror fans, get ready for another visit to "Hemlock Grove."

Hemlock Grove

Deadline reports that the Eli Roth-helmed thriller series has been given a second season order by Netflix. The streaming video service announced that the original series will return with 10 new episodes next year, bringing showrunner Charles H. Eglee ("Dexter") on board to steer the ship.

"The worldwide fan response to Hemlock Grove was phenomenal," said Roth. "Netflix members loved the potent combination of sexy monsters, mystery, and the dark family soap opera that ended with a huge twist, leaving audiences worldwide totally shocked. Season One was just a warm up for what we have in store for season two. Get ready to be scared in ways you never expected."

"Hemlock Grove" is based on Brian McGreevy's novel of the same name. The series received a mixed critical reaction after its April 19th launch, though popularity clearly wasn't an issue given the sophomore season order. Netflix noted in the announcement that the series was viewed more times in its first weekend than "House of Cards" and was especially popular among its younger viewers.

"In its first season, Eli, Brian, Lee and the team did an incredible job of introducing viewers to a unique world of memorable characters," said Cindy Holland, VP of Original Content at Netflix. "[Eglee]’s addition to the show, and his experience on such fan favorites as 'The Shield,' 'The Walking Dead' and 'Dexter,' will heighten the intensity of the mystery that grips Hemlock Grove."

As this show's first season ended with what seemed like the conclusion to the story, I would welcome the chance to see where it goes from here.

Is there really an Angel locked up by the Doctor, is the giant girl really alive, will the wolf boy come back and what's going to happen now that mommy has been killed by her Vampire son.

Lots of questions, hopefully lots of answers.

While the series had a number of problems, I still found it rather enjoyable, especially its homage to classic horror archetypes. Here's hoping for higher production value, more scares, and more mystery from season 2! And for the love of God, find a way to bring Kandyse McClure back, that girl is way too gorgeous to not be seen as much as possible!
